What to expect:
Plants ship to you based on your geographic location. Your shipment will be based on the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map which we have correlated to your zip code. This means you will receive your plants when it is the right time to plant for you.

You will receive two 'Blue Bird' Hibiscus, well rooted in 4-inch pots. These plants were carefully selected and packed for safe transport directly to you. Open immediately and follow the instructions in the planting guide available online that provides specific care instructions including how to plant them, continuing care and winterizing.

Expect plants to reach maturity in 24 months. However, growth can be affected by many factors including fertilization and climate factors unique to your planting location.

Expect heaviest blooming mid-summer that lasts until frost. You will see flowers the first year with more and more flowers each year as the plants grow. Hibiscus is one of the last plants to break dormancy in spring, but be patient. Their rapid growth and remarkable vigor will make up for their slow start.
